Linklaters Recognized as a Top Global Firm by Law360

Linklaters has been ranked as a top global law firm by U.S. legal publication Law360 in its annual ‘Global 20’ list of law firms with the greatest global reach and expertise.

The winning firms were selected based on the breadth, volume, and sophistication of their cross-border work, as well as their presence outside their home countries.

According to Law360, “Linklaters blazed new trails around the globe over the past year” to earn a spot on the Global 20 list.” It is also noted few projects show Linklaters’ global reach and capabilities more clearly than the $62 billion Takeda-Shire transaction.

“The effort was a brilliant deal showing the global nature of the firm — a Japanese client looking to take over a European-based company with operations globally. That created an opportunity for [Linklaters’] global financing team to do the largest financing out of Asia ever, led by London- and New York-based banking and finance teams.”

The article further notes that Linklaters divides its work broadly between corporate and finance practices and has been building a strong global investigative and regulatory team as part of its broader dispute resolution practice. That has meant pursuing opportunities in areas ranging from investigative work to arbitration and dispute resolution through litigation.
